A wonderful complex array of honey, orange marmalade and underlying citrus elements.
The palate is vibrant and expressive with subtle texture featuring red cherries and boysenberry. Diligent handling of oak exudes savoury notes of slight char combined with delicate cinnamon and nutmeg. A fine, yet balanced acidity line draws together all components leading to a finish that is both structural and complementary.
The serious and complex palate is mouth-filling with generous dark fruit and balanced oak barrel characters. There are fine integrated tannins giving the wine a solid structure. Overall, the pure varietal fruit, plush oak and rounded tannins give the wine beautiful harmony.
Dark Side of the Moon Shiraz shows deep forest berry fruit characters complemented by spicy, almost chocolatey oak. The wine is finely structured, quite tight in youth. With time all those forward primary fruit flavours will round out to fill the palate. A pretty and remarkably delicate wine.
It offers a very spicy palate with some licorice and cumin seed coming through, supported by a medium level of velvety tannins, lively acidity and finishing very long.
